trig integration

s- integral
endpoints are 0 and pi/2

i need to find the integral of sin^2 (2x) dx.
i know that the answer is pi/4, but im not sure how to get to it.

i know:
s sin^2(2x)dx= 1/2 [1-cos (4x)] dx, but then i'm confused.

The indefinite integral of
(1/2) [1-cos (4x)] is
(x/2) - (1/2)(1/4)(sin 4x)
Evaluate that at x = p/2 and 0 and take the difference
I get [(pi/4) -0] - {0 - 0) = pi/4

YOu got the hardest part, now expand your expression.
Hint: what is the derivative of 1/8 sin(4x)?

    That's the same as the integral of sin^2 x dx. Use integration by parts. Let sin x = u and sin x dx = dv v = -cos x du = cos x dx The integral is u v - integral of v du = -sinx cosx + integral of cos^2 dx which can be rewritten

    I need to find the integral of (sin x)/ cos^3 x I let u= cos x, then got -du= sin x (Is this right correct?) I then rewrote the integral as the integral of -du/ u^3 and then rewrote that as the integral of - du(u^-3). For this

    how do you start this problem: integral of xe^(-2x) There are two ways: 1) Integration by parts. 2) Differentiation w.r.t. a suitably chosen parameter. Lets do 1) first. This is the "standard method", but it is often more tedious
